Missy, here. I finally made the kale chips that Valerie and Mary recommended last week. I thought I'd share!
I got one bunch of curly kale. Washed it. Then laid it out on paper towels to dry. I actually ended up pretty much hand drying the leaves so I didn't have to wait.
Then I broke it into bite-sized pieces and placed in a large bowl.
The video on YouTube (Thank you, Mary!) said to sprinkle on 2 teaspoons of olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt (I use Kosher salt). I LOVE olive oil. In fact, I could just about drink it from the bottle (my favorite is Colavita). So I got carried away and probably used more like a tablespoon plus. It was really more than I needed. I also over-salted. So follow the directions and measure out 2 tsp. oil and 1/2 tsp. salt! :)
Then dig in with your hands and rub until all the leaves are totally coated and shiny.
Place in a single layer on two baking sheets.
Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
When they come out, they're a little brown around the edges. They're crunchy and yummy!! I'll do this next time I'm craving a salty snack. Thanks to you ladies for sharing!
Does anyone else have a suggestion for a healthy alternative to snack cravings? Or gosh, who says it has to be healthy?? ;)
